The Vision of Sustainable Development in the Desert Became Reality

SEKEM was founded with the idea of sustainable development and giving back to the community. The vision that brought Dr. Ibrahim Abouleish to dig the first well in the vast desert land still drives  SEKEM’s business approach. Our vision, mission and values serve as a compass which guides us in our everyday work in all SEKEM companies.
